Tell us about how you have expanded on blogging in your own unique way. 

About two years ago I upgraded my blog to be the site you see now. It was three (yes, three) separate blogs on blogger. As you can imagine, I became quite tired of managing the different outlets. I sprung for a WordPress site with my own domain name. I’ve found it has helped streamline my brand as well as my content. As an added bonus, there was a learning curve for building a website. Now I can add site building to my resume.

writer-vintage-woman-line-drawing-sm-flippedI’ve always had a hand in freelance writing, and I recently completed my Masters in Cinema Studies. Keeping a page up for my term papers and freelance work is always a good idea. Freelance is a fantastic way to push yourself to write more — and on a deadline. Plus, you can get paid (bonus!$).

And in all my spare time, I’ve been working on a novel.

I think the moral of the story here is always be writing. And when you’re not writing, be thinking about writing. And when you’re not thinking about writing, be reading.

  1. Hey, Meghan! Thanks for sharing with us. I was originally on blogger and moved to WordPress, to self-host and do more with my website. I still don’t know enough about coding and such to really do anything of my own (I hire help when I can, but haven’t had a good “makeover” in a long time). I love your new look and location, and agree with all your reasons for doing it. Congrats to you on the Master’s and on the experience with writing and site building. Very cool stuff! Good luck with your book. 🙂

  2. That’s really wonderful, Megan! I’d like to have my own domain blog one day, and WordPress is the prefect way if getting started. Freelance writing? What an amazing idea! I should definitely try it sometime!
